PRESENTATION AT BARRY.
PRESENTATION AT BARRY. On Saturday afternoon an interesting presenta- tion took place at the Board Schools, Barry, to the young man, named Samuel Attwell. who on the morning of the 16th July last made such gallant, efforts to save the life of a fellow workman named Samuel James, who. whilst engaged in repairing the dredger, David Davies, in the Barry Dock. met with such a sad end. The whole of the circumstances were fully detailed in the South ITales Star at the time, and they will no doubt still be fresh in the minds of our reader?. As we stated at the time, Mr. S. A. Williams, the teacher of the Bible Class of which Atwell is a member, interested himself in the case. First. Mr. Williams wrote to the authorities of the Royal Humane Society, but on consideration the secretary wrote to Mr. Williams and referred him to the Royal Society for the Protec- tion of Life from Fire. Some correspon- dence therefrom ensued, with the ultimate result that the secretary wrote and informed Mr. Williams that the society, after due deliberation, had decided to give a medal and JnO to Mr. Atwell for his gallant efforts. Mr. John Robinson, the resident engineer of the Bairy Company, presided, and made the presentation. There were also present the Rev. J. H. Stowell, M.A., Dr. Powell, Mr. John Lowdon. Mr. Alderman Meggitt, Mr. J. Rees. Mr. and Mrs. Hale (Newport), &c.. &c. Before making the presentation, Mr. John Robinson explained the whole affair related the various circumstances of the case, and read the correspondence which had ensued betwoen Mr. Williams and the different societies. The duty he had been asked to perform, he said. was one which gave him great pleasure—to present to Mr. Sam Atwell, a silver medal and £ 10 from the Royal Society for the Protection of Life from Fire, for distinguishing himself by trying to rescue Samuel Jamps. a fellow workmen, whilst they were both employed on the dredger, the David Davies, on the 16th July. Mr. S. A. Williams. Barry Dock. had taken the matter up with the approval of the Deputy Coroner (Mr. Carver). He had much pleasure in handing Mr. Atwell the medal and money which had been awarded him for his great services in trying to rescue the life of his fellow workman. (Applause.) Mr. Sam Atwell, who, on receiving the medal and two bank notes, was warmly applauded by those present, said he could not not put into words his feelings at that very Droud moment in his life. He thanked them very "much for coming there. When his fellow workman, Mr. James was burnt, he had no thought of this presentation he only had done what he would do again—(applause)— and what any other ordinary young man would have done. (Applause.) He was very thank- ful to them for the very great interest they had taken in this raotter. (Applause.) Mr. J. Lowdon said he was very pleased to be there on such an occasion. It always did one good to look at any young man likel Mr. Atwell who was willing to do such an action. It was very much more difficult for a man to be brave in such a case, than when stirred by the strains of music, and the roar of cannons. (Hear, hear.) He was very pleased to be there to congratulate Mr. Atwell. and he hoped his conduct would encourage his comrades to do likewise. (Applause). Mr. S. A. Williams then made a short speech, and related the story of the gallant deed of Mr. S. Atwell, illustrating it by means of a large photo- graph. It had been a great pleasure for him to do what he had, and he was glad to know the society had seen fit to recognise such a noble example for the young men of Barry to .follow. (Applause.) Short congratulory addresses were also given by the Rev. J. H. Stowell, and Mr. Alderman Meggitt, the latter moving a vote of thanks to Mr. Williams for the way in which he had taken the matter up and brought it to such a successful ending.—Dr. Powell seconded, and it was carried unanimously.—Mr. Williams responded, narrating how that. when Mr. Atwell went for Dr. Powell, he did not say any- thing about his own injuries until after James had been sent off to the Infirmary. (Applause.)—Mr. Williams then proposed a vote of thanks to Mr. Robinson for making the presentation. (Applause.) —Mr. J. Rees seconded.—In response. Mr. Robin- son said it ways always a pleasure to him to be able to afford pleasure to others. (Hear, hear.) The proceedings then terminated. The silver medal, which was enclosed in a nice -case, bore the inscription on one side of Duty for Honour," around the border being inscribed Royal Society for the Protection of Life from Fire, 1843." On the rim was engraved "Samuel Atwell. Barry Dock, f6th July, 1892." On the op- posite side of the medal was a view of a rescue from fire. The medal is hung by a red silk band from a silver clasp, so that Mr. Atwell can, if he chooses, wear it.
PENARTH POLICE COURT.
PENARTH POLICE COURT. MONDAY.—Before Colonel Guthrie (in the chair), Mr. Llewellyn Wood, and Major Thornley. THE PENARTH WOUNDING CASE.—This case, in which Julius France, a Russian sailor, charged Jeremiah Lynch with wounding him at Penarth on the 31st September, and which has been adjourned several times, again came on. The case waS ad- journed from the last court for the appearance of the young man named Eli Sims, who was not pre- sent at the last court. The prosecutor's evidence was read out and interpreted to prisoner. Eli Sims, Martha Sims, and Dr. Mayram's evidence was read over to them, and Mr. Jones, for the defence, called Samuel Burt, of Sydenham-street, Barry Dock. He had a conversation with France at Lynch's door on Sunday fortnight, and he then said that Lynch was the wrong man, and that it was the big man who used the knife and cut him. He also promised to come to Lynch's at three o'clock to settle the affair so as not to bring it before the court.—Mr. Jones said it was entirely a question of identification, the boy Sims being the only one who said Lynch caused the wound, and he also commented on the fact of Burt's evidence. and gave as his opinion that no jury would convict on the evidence which had been given, and, there- fore. he asked the Bench to diamisa the case.—Tha Bench decided to send Lynch for trial at the next Quarter Sessions at Swansea. Prisoner remarking as he left the dock that he was innocent of the charge. DETAILING A BAG OF CLOTHES.—William Burchell, a boarding-house keeper, of Barry Dock, was charged with detaining a bag of clothes, the property of John Spear, a seaman, who went to lodge with defendant three weeks ago. He had a bag of clothes, value £ 3, when he went there. Defendant locked him out on Monday night, and, when prosecutor again went to the house prisoner told him to clear out, and said he should not have his clothes until he paid him. He owed defendant 22s. for two weeks board, whieh he said he would pay him as soon as he could. He could not re- member borrowing more than 5s. He considered 35s. was all he owed him. Trade had been very slack at Barry, and he had not been able to ship. -In reply to Mr. Morris, who appeared for the defence, Drosecutor said he had been delayed because he could not get his clothes, and had been obliged to incur extra expense whilst waiting for the clothes.—The Bench decided that prosecutor .should have his bag oh payment of defendant'# debt, 39s. CONJUGAL L'NHAPPINESS AT BARRT DOCK.— Thomas George Williams, of Barry Dock, was •charged with assaulting his wife on the 19th Sep- tember at eight o'clock in the evening. The defen- dant came home, and prosecutrix told him that their child had been taken ill. He replied that it was through her neglect, and that she had not taken proper care of it. He cursed, and threatened to be hung for her; took hold of her by her shoulders, and shook her very violently, the baby being in her arms. After that he threw a knife at her. but which went over her head.—Mrs. Clarke, with whom the couple live, gave evidence, and the Bench bound defendant over in the sum of X10 to keep the peace for six months.

ATTENDANCE OFFICER'S REPORT. The Attendance Officer's report showed that 780 absentees had been visited, 75 notices had been served, and the average attendance during the last fortnight throughout the whole district was stated to be the highest yet known-viz., 82 per cent. The officer also intimated his intention of making a. new census of the children of the district of Barry Dock in the next few weeks, of Barry when the new girls' school will be opened, of Cadoxton in the spring. COOKERY CLASSES. Miss Hester Davies reported that as the school year ended on September 30, it would be better to discontinue giving cookery lessons after that date till after the examinations, and that the lessons should re-commence on the first Friday in Novem- ber. Miss Davies also suggested that the cookery examination should be held next Friday, and asked the Board to appoint some of the members to be present on that date. The Board was also reminded of their promise to oiler prizes to the most proficient pupils.—It was decided to adopt Miss Davies' report, and to ask her to suggest what prizes should be given by the Board. A DANGEROUS SPOT. A letter was read which had been received from Mr. Ewbank, pointing out to the Board the dangerous approach to the Cadoxton Schools from Main-street, and that one of the boys had met with an accident there a fortnight ago, and had ever since been under medical treatment. Mr. Ewballk also complained that the contractor, Mr. Rutter, had not removed certain nuisances outside the school.-The Chairman said that the architect had undertaken to see to the latter, and advised the Board to authorise the Clerk to write a strong letter to the Local Board about the dangerous approach.—This was agreed to. EVENING CLASSES. A letter was read from Mr. Thorpe, the secretary of the Barry Association of Teachers, with refer- ence to the proposed evening classes. Mr. Thorpe explained that the associatien wished to start evening classes under the Department, which would be able to earn grants. The classes would be held on three evenings a week, and not more than two hours would be given each night. One hour in the week would be devoted to re- creation. Elementary subjects would be taught if necessary, and three or four of the following specific subjects :—Physiology, Domestic Economy. Shorthand, French, Aiegebra. and Euclid. The Board would have to employ their own teachers, and the association would be responsible for the recreation hour if the Board would provide the necessary appliances. Only boys who had passed standard five would be admitted, besides those who had left school. The probable number of atten- dants was estimated at 50.—After a long dis- cussion. the Chairman, Vice-Chairman, and Dr. Lloyd Edwards were appointed a sub-committee to meet a deputation of teachers, and make the necessary arrangements for starting1 the classes.- On the motion of the Rev. J. Price it was decided to throw open the classes to girls. ANNUAL EXAMINATIONS.

Jones, 32, High-street, the only applicant for the post vacated by Mr. Badcoe, Barry Dock School, was ap- pointed as ex-P.T., at a salary of e 6 0 a year.—It was decided to advertise for teachers to take the place of Miss Thomas and Miss John, of Barry.— Miss Williams, of Cadoxton, was appointed to take the place of Miss Sarah Evans at the Cadoxton Board Schools until the examination.-An increase of salary of C 5 a year was granted to Miss Sarah Evans (Holton), Miss Burbidge, and Miss C. Morgan.— Several letters from local ministers were read with reference to Sunday School treats in answer to a communication from the clerk.-A report was read from General Lee on certain repairs, &c., wanted at Cadoxton School, and adopted.—A number of parents attended, whose children had been attending irregularly.—This was all the business of importance.

VALE OF GLAMORGAN AGRICULTURAL…
VALE OF GLAMORGAN AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. SHOW AT COWBRIDGE. The initial show of the newly-formed Vale of Glamorgan Agricultural Society was held at Cow- bridge on Tuesday in the Cattle Market and adjoining fields. The show is intended to supply the want of a more local institution of the kind than has previously existed, and for this reason the area of competition, was mostly confined to the district of the Bridgend and Cowbridge Union. The experiment proved a great success, the total number of entries reaching 424, while the quality of the exhibits, especially in the three chief classes (cattle, horses, and sheep), was well up to the average. Despite the continuous downpour of rain, which lasted from start to finish, the show was well patronised by the public. Amongst those noticed on the ground were :-Sir Joseph Spear- man. Bart., Colonel II. Tyler, Colonel J. T. Tyler, Mr. A. J. Williams. M.P.. Major H. R. Homfray, Messrs. R. T. Bassett, R. K. Prichard, J. S. Gibbon, F. James (Marlborough Grange). Loder Vachell, Dr. Leckie. Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Cobb, Captain Williams. Mr. Montague Price, and Mr. Digby Nicholl. The cattle clssses numbered 115 entries, and some excellent beasts were shown, the winners all being well known tenant farmers in the Vale. In the sheep section the exhibits were not numerous. Mr. William Thomas, of the Hayes, Sully, distinguished himself, as usual, in these classes, taking first and second prize for the best yearling ram. The cart horses, though forming a small section, were quite a feature of the show, and evinced the marked improvement which has been made in this breed during the past two years. In the classes for hunters several promising animals were ex- hibited, but nearly all were somewhat too young. In the afternoon the horses were paraded in the ring, and the jumping contests attracted a good deal of interest. The following were the judges :—Hunters, hacks, harness cobs, and ponies General Watson, Llan- daff, and Mr. Humphreys, Cheltenham. Cart and agricultural horses Mr. Thomas Jenkins, Pant- scallog, Dowlais. and Mr. Rees Williams, Llyswen House, Brecon.

DANGERS OF SPORT.
DANGERS OF SPORT. — IMPORTANT TO FOOTBALLERS AND CYCLISTS. INSURE AGAINST RISK! Some time ago a young man named Edwards nearly met with a serious accident near Cadoxton while out cycling. This only illustrares how great is the danger attached to every form of out-door sport and amusement. Even now, when safety bicycles are so much used, a considerable amount Qi danger is inseparable from the popular pastime ot cycling. The danger to which every player of Football -especially under the Rugby rules-is open lends, indeed, attraction and excitement to the game, but it, no doubt, deters many a poor man who can ill afford to be laid up with a fractured arm or leg from indulging in that healthy and invigorating game. In view of this the promoters of the SOUTH WALES STAR have determined to introduce a novel departure which will, we believe, not only com- mend the paper still more to the public, but which will prove of inestimable benefit to our local Cyclists and Footballers. To every person who has sustained an injury which will result in fracture of an arm or leg while engaged in playing football or while cycling I zrl will be paid the sum of £ 5, provided the person so injured shall be the owner of the SOUTH WALES STAR for the current week, containing an Insurance Coupon with his usual signature written in ink thereon. RAILWAY AND STREET ACCIDENTS. This Coupon Insurance will also cover all accidents which may happen to the owner of the current SOUTH WALES STAR, while a passenger on any Railway. Steamboat, Tramway, Omnibus Street, or on any Public Road within the United Kingdom as a PRIVATE INDIVIDUAL. This Coupon Insurance, therefore, practically insures the possessor of one copy of the paper against all accidents that may happen to him, except at the time when following his ordinary occupation. Coupons have, however, been hitherto, in general, limited to railway accidents, and that for death only. A recently published Parliamentary return gives the number of persons killed and injured on the railways in the United Kingdom during 1890 as 918 KILLED AND 8,971 INJURED. Great as this number is, yet, having regard to the hundreds of thousands who travel upon the vast network of railway lines in the United Kingdom, it is an obvious reflection that railway travelling, as compared with the dangers of the streets, is by far the safest mode of progression. It has seemed to us and to others that a system of insurance which would give some compensation to those who meet with ACCIDENTS IN THE STREETS, and afford a welcome contribution towards the in- evitable expenses of such mishaps, would be a boon to the public at large. Hundreds of men, week in. week out, from year's end to year's end. travel by railway, 'bus, or tram to and from business, who have not insured their lives or provided in any way against accident. The possibility of how to extend to these some modicum of protection is naturally hedged about by a great many difficulties; but at least the benefits which we have now placed within the reach of the purchasers of our paper are such as could only be obtained from the com- pany direct by paying more than the price of the paper. Football, which is a national game, is, by reason of the fervour with which it is played, attended with more danger than any other pastime, if we may judge from the number of accidents from time to time reported. Having regard to the enthusiasm which it invokes in these districts, the circumstance that our insurance coupon pro- vides also for the INSURANCE OF PLAYERS of this game cannot fail to command cordial ap- proval. Itis noteworthy that footballriskshaveordi- narily been regarded byaccident insurance companies as necessitating higher premiums, or indeed as un- desirable, and this has led to the institution of a Football Insurance Union. But while the insur- ance in this journal is limited to one coupon for each holder, it is not invalidated by any insurance, other than coupon, with anv Accident Company, but is in addition thereto. It is hardly necessary for us to dwell upon the fact that cycling, like everything else, has its dangers, but to use an Irish expression only more so," and the same benefits are extended to cyclists as to football players.

fjl O N T I N E ASSURANCE. THE great obstacle to the universal adoption of Life Assurance amongst salaried officials is the fact that in most offices premiums remain payable during the whole period of life, long after the productive years have passed, thus becoming a serious burden, whilst, at the same time, the surrender value are so entirely disproportionate to the amount paid as premium that payment can only be discontinued at very serious loss. For instance, persons who are entitled to retire with pensions from their employment constantly find them- selves obliged to remain at their posts, being otherwise unable to provide from their lessened income the necessary sum for the maintenance of their whole life policies. These obstacles are overcome by the Tontine Policies issued at ordinary life rates by the EQUITABLE LIFE ASSURANCE SOCIETY OF THE UNITED STATES.
